Alec Baldwin will join Robert Osborne as the new co-host of Turner Classic Movies’ “The Essentials.” He will begin his co-hosting duties in March, introducing each week’s movies.
Mr. Baldwin previously participated in TCM’s “Guest Programmer” series and hosted the TCM special “Role Model: Gene Wilder.”
“Of all the contemporary stars who have appeared on TCM over the years, Alec Baldwin is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate about classic film,” Tom Brown, vice president of original programming for TCM, said in a statement. “After his ‘Guest Programmer’ stint and the wonderful special with Gene Wilder, we knew we wanted to find new opportunities to work with him again. We are truly thrilled that he has enthusiastically accepted our invitation to co-host ‘The Essentials.’”
